Methyl methacrylate (MMA) is a commonly used durable two-component polymer traffic marking system. MMA has extensive advantages over alternatives. MMA endures the fiercest weather conditions and extended heavy wear patterns, making it perfect for high performance road-marking needs.
There’s an old line in the paint business: “We put the quality in. It’s up to you to get it out.”
Here are a few of our observations and highlights:
- Work Zone Safety has grown to become the industry’s highest priority; protecting both roadside workers and motorists.
- In fact, National Work Zone Awareness Week is April 17-21, 2023.
- Orange markings may be specified to reinforce work zone safe driving.
- Increasing painted lines to 6” is gaining attention. Greater visibility is the watchword.
- Highly reflective paint stripes improve the transition to automated vehicles.
- Retro-reflectivity (nighttime pavement markings visibility) is a hot topic.
- The new federal retro-reflectivity standard has made waves in the industry.
- This is good news for those who produce measurement equipment and those who promote durable, hi-visibility coatings.
- Staffing is more important than ever.
- We noted a large number of younger professionals. These people were well versed in the industry.
- One extra-cool machine was exhibited: RoadPrintz’s robot-painter. Their motto is “No Boots On the Pavement.” Their equipment reduces labor and speeds the application of auxiliary markings.
- Last, but not least, traffic paint materials and product availability should be back in balance this year.
Driveways are usually exposed to vehicle fluids, UV rays, rain, and snow. A good seal coating protects your home driveway from abrasion, weather, and chemical damage and improves its appearance. While contractors often use BioSealcoat® asphalt sealers, here we will discuss an option best-suited for homeowners. This post will explain how to apply driveway sealer with a roller in four easy steps, as well as the best driveway sealer to use.
The Growing Street Art Trend
Street art or asphalt art is a growing trend in major cities worldwide that involves activating public spaces with inexpensive and effective art. Cities are integrating art through visual interventions on roadways, pedestrian spaces, and various types of vertical infrastructure.
When choosing traffic marking paint for roadways, parking lots, walkways, and more, it's imperative for local and state agencies to select a paint that can withstand heavy traffic and harsh weather conditions. The ideal option will offer long-term adhesion and visibility with low maintenance concerns to minimize traffic disruption and effectively maintain public safety.
Aerosol coatings are spray paints applied from pressurized cans. They are convenient and user-friendly because they are portable, have a long shelf life, and cover irregular or hard-to-reach surfaces. People use industrial spray coatings for various applications, such as protecting components against abrasion, corrosion, grease, and slipping.
Health Risks of Coal Tar Driveway Sealers - PAHs 101
Coal tar sealants and asphalt emulsions are thick, black protective substances for coating asphalt parking lots, playgrounds, and driveways. While they help seal and preserve such surfaces, they also contain various chemicals that, when released into the environment, may cause health and ecological issues. Fortunately, homeowners have BioSEALSAFE™ as a safer option to resurface driveways. Learn what makes BioSEALSAFE™ a superior alternative.
We are offering our eco-friendly asphalt resurfacer to customers online through a partnership with Lowe’s. BioSealSafe™ is the safer way to rejuvenate and seal your driveway. Stop using outdated dangerous chemicals to seal your driveway. Protect your driveway and your family with BioSealSafe™.
